​Life is pretty sweet right now for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. He has absolutely killed it as a starter for the team, going 5-0.


Now, Jimmy G has been repaid for his services, in a BIG way.


Garoppolo netted the ​richest deal in the NFL history in terms of annual average goes. Oh, and the deal also makes him currently the highest paid QB in the NFL. 


The details of the storied contract have now emerged, and it will make you look twice. 

​​Schefter provides the full breakdown in a separate tweet.


How in the world did Jimmy G's agent pull this off? It's one thing to get so much overall money, but the bonuses and guaranteed figures are absurd. 

So, what does this mean for the NFL? It means that many ​quarterbacks will be using this deal as the base of their negotiations.


At the same time, don't expect any crash trade to come down the road, either. 

Not bad for a guy who has only started in seven games in the NFL, right?
